Inter Milan ready to back exciting youngster Joel Obi

Inter Milan have informed Joel Obi's management that he's not for sale.

Obi has been given a first team chance by Andrea Stramaccioni and has impressed Inter chiefs with his performances in midfield.

The Nerazzurri bought the remaining 50 per cent of Obi's contract from Parma in January and intend to build next season's midfield around the 21 year-old Nigerian.

Obi has been mentioned as a makeweight in an offer for Napoli star Ezequiel Lavezzi, but Inter directors insist the youngster is not going anywhere this summer.
